Commieblock? Come on... If you can show me a real commieblock with that glass facade on the front I'll be quite impressed. The concrete sides just makes it look strong and imposing imho.

This building is so massive and wide. It's the perfect Gap-filler Dubai needed from some angles.

It fits perfectly in Dubai.

Thanks for the great Updates.

"Commie blocks" is by far the most overused and misused phrase on these forums. Guess what guys: not every building you dislike is a "commie block".

Guess what: A building that has a large amount of exposed cement is a commie-block, who said I disliked it, assumptions are bad.

1. Commieblock -Usually tall concrete building

^Then New York must be a communist city lol. There is a difference. Communist buildings are NOT that tall (instead a rectangle with 30 floors at max). This design looks as if its commieblock because the facade isnt fully installed yet. I come from previously communist country and i lived in a commie block for most of my life. Thats not it!
